it right with this devastating cover page. "shame on u-s on us, indeed. harry reid moved to drop california senator dianne feinstein's proposed assault weapons ban from the gun control legislation that's protected to reach the senate floor next month. harry reid said he would like to do it but the votes are against her. >> diane has worked so hard on this but urgent now her amendment using most the optimistic numbers has less than 40 votes. not 60. >> john: he's quite broken off. if harry reid had not broken his promise to pass new laws with 51 votes getting the necessary number might have been possible. here's another number over 50 that senator might have considered when making his legislative plans. according to the latest "abc news" "washington post" poll, 57% of adults said they would support a ban on the sale of assault weapons. only 41% said they wouldn't. that's only if you believe in democracy. as for senator feinstein she had said to have been angry when she told reporters, how many assault weapons do you need circulating. to have these mass killings is such a blight on everything
to be the top winner. meanwhile, back here at home harry reid has said, well, we are going to have -- try to get a gun control bill to the floor, it will include no assault weapons ban. get that? not that they bring it up and vote it down. harry reid will not even let an assault weapons ban come to the floor for a vote even though the american people support it by about 55% and despite all of the great work that dianne feinstein has done on that bill. harry reid proving to be a weenie. that and more, here on current tv. [ music ] billy zane stars in barabbas. coming in march to reelz. to find reelz in your area, go to reelz.com alright, in 15 minutes we're going to do the young turks. i think the number one thing that viewers like about the honest. they know that i'm not bs'ing them with some hidden agenda, actually supporting one party or the other. when the democrats are wrong, they know that i'm going to be the first one to call them out. they can question whether i'm right, but i think that the audience gets that this guy, to the best of his ability, is trying to look
harry reid dismissing the idea of the assault weapons ban or ban of high capacity magazines would get a vote. quote: it's been clear that republicans a vote to the floor. my job is to bring a vote to the store. i can get 60 votes to proceed to that. we cannot have votes on everything unless i get something on the floor. it's a legislative impossible right now for amendment less than 40 votes that's not 60, referring to my amendment. so, i don't have 60, what can i do? oh, by the way if you don't have 60, you know what that means? a lot of democrats bailed on it. no, reed doesn't want the vote, because he doesn't want to embarrass his democratic senators who are just as much sellouts to the n.r.a. as republicans are. the democrats don't want the vote! remember all this excitement at the time when the president was having meetings with people who were for gun control and made the mistake of thinking democrats might actually do something? >> our meeting yet with the vice president was awesome. i mean, it was highly motivational to come out of there with a commitment to a comprehensive lo
harry reid decided they were not going it to put it in their gun bill that they're going to put on the floor. it's an assaults weapons ban. over 200 weapons are still available to americans. but no, this was not good enough. the reason was because reid and other democratic senators were afraid of how it would play. max baucus of montana jon tester of montana. mark begich of ark heidi keitkamp and joe maughan. they're running scared. if they all band together and said you know what we're going to do this, they would be with the american people. it turns out this time they were not with the american people. and then of course "abc news" washington poll post conducted march 7th shows 57% of americans support assault weapons ban. 41% oppose it. 57% of americans support it. why cannot the senate get that through their heads? why can't they sit there and say, you know what, this is what the people want. let's vote on it. 57 is the smallest majority for any of these gun laws. we've heard 91%--91% are in favor of universal background checks. mark bagich said, we don't need universal bac
'm sure they probably all went to reid and said, please harry, don't make us do this. don't make us do this. >> michael: right. >> if those five or six had stood together and had met and said you know what we're going to stand together and take them on, and stand together or fall apart as the old phrase goes and i bet if they had stood together democrats would be em-boldened and i bet they would find incredible support even in their states for being brave. >> michael: i totally agree with you. i could not agree more. let's move to the other side of the aisle and listen to boy wonder, reince priebus today. >> we're not losing the issues on the math. we're not losing the issues on spending and debt, and jobs and the economy. those are total winners for us. >> michael: i am speechless. michael what is your reaction to that? >> that's crazy. poll after after poll after poll after poll comes out and show that the majority of the american people want x to happen, and as soon as you read that poll, that's nice i'm glad the american people think that but it's never going to
of day. today democrats dropped a key provision from their gun bill the assault weapons ban because harry reid said it didn't have the votes to pass. senator dianne feinstein who introduced the ban said it this way. i cannot fight the nra. the nra spends unlimited sums backed by the gun manufacturer who are craven in my view. i don't know what we can done other than drafting a bill. in asking for support and enabling something to pass in the senate now i could put a hold on the whole package but i'm not going to do that. so instead the rest of the gun safety bill will go forward without the assault weapons ban. of course there is a possibility it could be attached to a later bill but certainly there is not a guarantee. gun safety is fast becoming a low priority in washington. and another is immigration. john boehner praised the bipartisan house group working on immigration legislation. >> there are a lot of issues in here that have to be dealt with and i think what this bipartisan group came up with is frankly a pretty responsible solution. >> michael: sounds like progress but of course t
: okay. >> caller: you just talked about harry reid agreeing to reform filibustering, and i'm wondering how harry reid feeling about that handshake that he gave him over that. >> stephanie: yeah. yeah. >> caller: but what i really called about is can you and all of the other people that do what you do stop talking about these republican crises and start getting into people's heads that if we don't attack these republicans for not doing it -- it is them shutting up that would stop these crazies. >> stephanie: all right. we just mentioned it. there you go. with a bell. >> yes. [ bell chimes ] [ applause ] >> stephanie: and mitch mcconnell is a bag of pus. okay. jim in chicago. hello, jim. >> caller: yeah hi stephanie. love your show. you guys crack me up. >> stephanie: thank you. >> caller: for sure. the democrats have to get with it and create a policy that's going to take -- bring the voters to the polls because the republicans answer is tax breaks. i.e. -- it has all been we're going to cut your taxes, where the democrats have to come one up on that so they can get t
an hour. harry reid gave him an opportunity to leave at the appointed hour. he stayed another half an hour after that. so he clearly wanted to get engaged. he was very complementary of the ability to start moving legislation on gun safety on dealing with immigration reform eight senators are working on and that we enacted the vial lens against women act. he did point out that we have made some progress and progress is being made on our agenda and probably prior to issues but i think most of the discussion was around the budget problems and the fact that we are in sequestration i think we would rather see a more balanced way of dealing with the budget problems >> bill: we saw the paul ryan bucket which is a copy of what he has done in the past i am sure it will be dead on arrival. today, senate patty mer reis release the senate version of the budget. what can you tell us about it, senator? how does it differ from the ryan budget? >> the ryan budget is a lot of smoke and mirrors. he claims they are going to get certain reductions in spending but doesn't g
: they're kind of laughing at the budget. it is pile on the budget munster day. senator harry reid. >> he has held out to be this guy who understands things so well. what he understands is nothing. >> stephanie: representative chris van hollen. >> it is a question of whether you take a balanced approach which is what we proposed or you take this lopsided uncompromising approach which is what we're seeing in the house republican budget. >> stephanie: richard in chicago. you're on "the stephanie miller show." hi richard. >> caller: hello. i voted for jan schakowsky, too. >> stephanie: yea. >> caller: the stuff about guns in schools and they haven't proposed arming the kindergarteners yet. >> stephanie: they will. >> caller: surprised they've overlooked it. you can't walk into the nra headquarters with a gun i'll bet ya. you can't go into courts or congress. it is okay for the common people to have all of the guns running. you can't walk into a gunshop with a gun. >> stephanie: yeah. >> caller: because they think you're robbing them. some, you can't have more than one bullet in a gun. what a
in the senating didn't have the stones for it. harry reid is going to let the assaults weapon ban die because he doesn't want to lose his seat. it's really sad. what is the tipping point going to be? what is it going to take for people to wise up, and look at crime rates in other countries that have sensible gun control. and i had this talk with michael moore, and he wrote about an op-ed about it last week, that it would take releasing photos of the victims. because americans watch too much tv. we have a shock level of about five weeks and then we move on. >> stephanie: you know what the real evil is chris? >> facebook. >> stephanie: actually i think it's twitter. photo of man watching porn at work goes viral. within hours it had been retweeted over 2500 times. he has a big windows -- >> yeah and a big computer monitor too. >> stephanie: student who bad-mouth teacher on twitter found out that teachers use twitter too. i hate you mr. terrence you said the test was on tuesday not wednesday. the test was scheduled for tuesday. the kid didn't pay at attention. and another rea
, and not considering they would be a democrat and working with harry reid instead of mitch mcconnell -- >> wait, wait, wait. you forgetting about alvin green. >> oh, yes. [ laughter ] >> there are a lot of people who have forgotten about him. he ran for the state house after that and just got trounced. >> did he really? >> yeah. >> bill: oh, he did. >> despite all of the notoriety and at attention he got facing jim demint that was not one of the most successful political careers. >> bill: lindsey graham has become so far right, you know, you can't get to the right of him anymore, because he is afraid of his own shadow, but has anybody filed against him or is he just making it up? >> no. no. and of course filing won't open until march of next year and nobody has really even emerged, though there are tea party forces and libertarian forces here in the republican party who are small but vocal and pretty organized and they would love to get a credible candidate up against him. in fact they would love to change the rules of the primary so it's done at a convention than a primary itself
in the country as we head into the mid terms. harry reid is not going to include an assault weapons ban next month. it come up as an amendment and we will get the votes on record as to whether lawmakers stand on that. the question now becomes what will potential legislation cover, maybe new school security measures, maybe expanded background checks, while the latter has overwhelming public support, republicans continue to balk. thomas young is dying and has written a letter to president bush and dick chain any on behalf of himself and fellow veterans. he is saying that the two should beg from forgiveness from veterans like him who were forced to go to war in iraq and not afghanistan. a mission for health. they think this world isn't big enough for the both of them. but we assure you - it is. bites. little greatness. >> "viewpoint" digs deep into the issues of the day. >> has the time finally come for real immigration reform? >> with a distinctly satirical point of view. if you believe in state's rights but still believe in the drug war you must be high. >> only on current tv. ♪ >> announc
